TY - Admin 1st March 2021


You must register and get started with this course. The first four modules are supposed to be completed in Microsoft Excel before mid term. Anyone who is only registering now needs to catch up. If you have stuck to the schedule you will have the excel course finished this week and have earned your first cert.

You must register with your school email. Please only register once. I have pasted the instructions they sent below. The other courses that are available in this pack will be used for when you are not on work experience on Wednesdays.

This is the link to register

Enter your name, your email address, and create a password.


After you have registered, students can login anytime on this link:


Can any student who is having difficulty with registering or logging in please contact me today as I am going to make a call to the company. They will be able to let me know who has tried and help with technical issues.

Work Experience

We are still not recommending that students attend work experience at the minute but will rethink this when there is some relaxation of the covid guidelines.

Looking into Law

Well done to all students who completed the first week of this course last Wednesday. I will send the link to the next module for this Wednesday. This course will be a great addition to the CV.

IACT Wednesdays

Remember all students must complete the extra IACT courses on a Wednesday while there is no work experience. I will send you the modules I expect you to complete on top of your IT on Wednesday mornings.


Please continue to complete your Gaisce & John Paul

Can the Create a Home group keep in touch with me regarding how they are getting on

Digital media Project - many students did not attend this launch on Friday. I did send numerous reminders after the power went on. You must get in touch with me today as there are a number of sites you have to register with and a google classroom to join. If you gave me your name to join this. I am holding you to do the course. The programme facilitator will meet with those who didn’t come on last Friday on Wednesday at 12.30pm. You will be sent a link to join.


Can all Cohort 8 & 9 please join together now for the Thursday sessions. I am getting a roll from this every week. Some students asked could they join and again are not attending. This is not The TY way folks. You sign up and commit, you follow through.

Love the life you Live

I have three names of students who were on this programme on Friday. If there are others who just missed last week but usually attend can you please send me your name so I can pass it on to Fran. Once again there were many more students who chose to sign up for this but have not been attending.

Intergenerational Knitting Project

Folks this is starting Monday week 8th. So all addresses of your Buddies need to be in the google doc immediately as they need to get the wool to everyone. Please fill in the name of the person who will be knitting with you and their address asap.

Congratulations to all those who completed the RCSI Minmed programme last week and to those students who are finishing up the Bridge Beyond History Project this week.

Engineers Week

I have posted a number of links for this on facebook. It runs from Friday to Friday next. Please let me know if you take part in any of these or are doing a work placement as part of this.


Your Programme choice form has to be filled in for today ie are you going on to Traditional Leaving Certificate or doing LCA. For any student who is considering the LCA Programme I will be inviting yourselves and your parents to join a google meet on Tuesday evening to find out a bit more about it.

If you intend to choose the traditional Leaving Certificate I believe your subject choice is open for VSware for you to complete.
